Another Moment of Panic

     Or I could title this "10 Things Not to Expect of Yourself Thanksgiving Weekend". I have come to this newfound realization that I overcommit. I use to think I was disorganized. (Well ok sometimes, I am.:) But, I tend to not look ahead and see the big picture on a regular basis. I think I have unlimited time over four days and DREAM of what could be accomplished. Well-not necessarily around the house or family-but in the studio. Hmm...sounds like a teensy problem already because it is a family holiday.

    I didn't take into account the following:

20 people were eating here on Thursday. A turkey. A really big turkey.
2 of those people were staying here.
4 more would come and go and eat here various things.
Children would like to go to movies, play with friends, come over and need to be taken home.
I would feel crazed to decorate the house for Christmas-inside and out-in the midst of the chaos.
I would go out to dinner with my brother and sister-in-law.

Now- I had a super great time and really enjoyed myself with all of my family. But...I was busy.

Can you see where this is going? Not one thing was stitched on since Tuesday. My machine has not been turned on since Tuesday. I was so busy just doing "things" that there was no time to sew.  I have just lost five days-which as my son calculated=one less quilt done by January 1. .

Why in the world I would feel some weird urge to re-do my blog banner in the midst of the chaos-I have no idea. And for each five minute interval I had to fix it, someone else would call me. It needs to be fixed. Good thing there is always Monday. Hope you had a great weekend. I had so much fun that it's hard for it to be over.

Back at it this week!

  1. I love your new banner. It brings back fond memories of our fun time together this summer.
    I too am looking forward to getting back to normal - whatever that is. I need to make a list of all the stuff I need to accomplish before Christmas. Hmmm... let's see... three knitting projects, maternity scrubs to sew, children's books to read to CD for the new grandbabies, not to mention all the other regular stuff. It's a good thing there's Monday!
